From: Easy Going Scans

In the year 2038, a white light descended on the center of Tokyo and stole the memories of over one million people. The cause of this horrible incident was not determined, and no cure was to be found. The government formed a separate city beneath Tokyo to house and care for the victims of the incident and branded them as "KIDz." Regardless of their age, they truly are like children, and they must be retaught everything they once knew. Noa Ikurumi, who lives in this isolated society, is just taking one day at a time and dreaming of finally being allowed to go back out into the world. But Noa's life will once again change drastically on the day that he is taken hostage by a terrorist with some surprising information about his identity...

Brains over brawn.

I've always been a huge fan of the thinkers, the masterminds, the tacticians of fiction. Given a choice between a muscle-bound hero and a cunning villain, I will laud the cunning villain every time.
Intelligent anti-heroes. These are the people who use their superior intelligence to seek their heroic, villainous or ambitious ends, masterfully manipulating pawns and opponents to overcome the limitations of simple strength: Dirk Provin of "The Second Sons", Reinhard von Lohengramm of "Legend of the Galactic Heroes", Griffith of "Berserk", Eumenes of "Historie", Lelouch vi Britannia of "Code Geass", Yagami Light of "Death Note", Hiyama Ren of "Lost+Brain".
And now, securely joining their ranks is Noa of "Zennou no Noa".
I eagerly await more.

too short and fast for story like this

Reading this immediately reminds me of Code Geass...
ummm... 3 volumes is too short for manga with big ideas like this. Reading this is kind of being chased, because the story is so fast...
And something that disturb me is the male protagonist character that often changing suddenly, like sometimes he cold-hearted but then full of humanity, kind like that. Too bad, cause at first I like the main chara. So, IMO it's still far far away if it's being compared with Code Geass.
hehe, IMO, Noa and Lelouch maybe have the same way-of-doing, but their principle is very different. heh heh, it'll be very interesting too see their fighting XD lol

Stupid ending ultimately poor writing even if rushed

Very stupid ending. I really hate when the author tries to go for a cliffhanger ending of this variety. It's a really cheap way of doing things that often fails to do anything other than annoy. In this particular case not only did it annoy, it felt like it was rushed. Furthermore someone who comes up with a plan like this that takes great pains not to kill people, wouldn't have come up with such a stupid plan since millions of people would end up dying in the process.

Yea, the only thing I'm left thinking after seeing the "ZENNOU NO NOA / END". What?

This is like a compressed draft of Code Geass. Everything is half assed and done despite the wonderful potential this manga had. In conclusion, rushed and unpolished.

First off, I did like the art. Not saying I loved it, but there's not much to pick on it.

The story well... like I said, it was rushed, not enough time and emotion put into it. As a result, the road from point a to point b was eliminated. Also, the ending... I must say that ruined Noa's character.

Not much to the characters' backgrounds are explained. The various emotions aren't portrayed well either. I mean, just how easy can Noa change his mind? That was referring to the ending.

In general, I'm disappointed. It was definitely worth reading, but all the wasted potential! It's like reading a textbook rather than a manga. And one that has a cover and a backcover, but only 50% of the contents remaining...

Ill agree that the pace was too fast for this kind of series, but I loved everything else. The reality begind the bomb, and tojou's(sp?) actions was awesome. Not to mention noa is an amazing char that I can barely put it in words. With only 2 years of cultivating knowledge he was able to fight world leaders, and with 15 years he was absolutely unstoppable... lelouch can't even touch that with or without geass. Basically while it was rushed I found this series to be amazing, and if you look back after the revelation at the end, the once jumbled and randomized plot all comes together.... plus that ending will be stuck I'm my mind for days. Don't think I've ever seen such an amazing self destruction

The start was great... but I was very disappointed by the ending. I was like "WTH!" when II saw the ending!
It felt like the mangaka was too lazy and just suddenly ended...

I started reading this manga and it was pretty epic. Lots of mind games, though they had a tendency to constantly pull a "I'm not left handed" kinda thing but it was good. But then suddenly it just started ending and everything was just rushing forward to come together for what I thought might be a redeeming ending. But it ended with "Oops." It wasn't really a satisfying ending at all. It felt like not a single thing was accomplished in this manga and personally an ending like that just doesn't fit my taste.

It had a wonderful setting and wonderful characters and a wonderful plot, and there was so much potential there. The ending was ... unexpected, and although it was a refreshing way to approach the story, I really wished it was less vague!
All in all, still pretty wonderful, even if the ending was a bit abrupt.

The ending is not really axed

well, it is short, but the story is not really forced to an end. i think, it's just using a kind of a way, so that the mangaka can just drop or continue it someday (?).
so if u are someone who doesn't like to read rushed-ending/axed-mangas, i think it's okay for u to read this.

It's only 3 short of a volume. Since it has too much material in it. The story only focused and moved forward along with the protagonist. It's content is vast could've easily gotten to 10 volumes but the author rushed the story. Bases weren't all answered. Details on many factor in the series weren't revealed. Backgrounds on the characters weren't there. Still was a great read. It didn't leave me any strong lingering feelings that want more. I enjoyed every aspect of information that was available but it greatly lacks detail and background. This series would've have been more enjoyable and entertaining if was written with great care of the plot.
